Spicy Bell Pepper Shrimp

This is such a quick and tasty dish!  I always use wild Pink Argentine Shrimp as it has the best flavor.   Also, can substitute scallops or chicken if preferred.  I always use “Smart Organic Chicken” by Tecumseh (just purchased by Tyson because it is so good!) it tastes fabulous and the texture is perfect!  Only 230 calories so there is still room to add a side vegetable or salad and maybe even put over pasta or rice too!

Ingredients

Prep Time: 10             Cook Time: 20 min                Serves: 4 People

  1. Stem & remove seeds in both Red Bell Peppers and the jalapeno pepper.
  2. Combine olive oil, lime juice, Red Bell Peppers, pepper flakes and garlic in a food processor; pulse until almost smooth. Transfer mixture to a small sauté pan and cook over medium high heat until reduced by half, approximately 8 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  3. Once mixture is cool, add cilantro and season to taste with salt. Pour mixture over shrimp and marinate for a few minutes or up to 1 hour.
  4. Heat a large skillet over high heat with 1 tbsp. oil. Add shrimp and cook; tossing often until shrimp is cooked (3-5minutes) and sauce is reduced
